Children are educated by what the grown-up is, and not by his talk – Carl Jung
I think that every crime that happens in the world is committed by persons who are themselves victims. More or less, these people have known violence, abuse, neglect, and all other negative things during the early times in their lives. Thinking that avenging every misfortune they have and committing the same to others, they will mend the void but it only adds up to their sins, and only buries them further in the grave of complexity.
I have been hooked on watching a television series lately and I must say, the mind indeed is a very powerful thing; it can really make impossible things possible. An average mind can only think too much; geniuses are far more in tune with their instincts, and have really used up all the spaces inside this nutshell. The fate of the world will now depends on one thing: the intention of that person- whether he will use it for the good, or otherwise. Being good or bad is something that is not only learned intellect-wise, nor it is only read in the books. It is something that is learned through everyday experience, feelings are involved, and it is modeled, not just seen abstractly. In order for that sense of wrong or right to be fully absorbed in the person, it must start from when the human mind and soul is very raw and fresh. In other words, learning starts from the moment a baby is born, up until he has grown up. As the common knowledge say, learning is a lifelong process. Every experience is a teacher.
Which brings me to conclude that we should all be careful with what we say and act around children. Their young minds are like blank canvass, the painting will result on what the painter will paint, plus the emotions attached to it. It will then have an effect on how they will turn out to be as adults, and will then have a say on how our world ends up.
